Bristol Rugby and England U20
Mat Protheroe is considered as one of the best talents to come through the successful Hartpury College in recent years. An attacking fly-half who can play in various positions including fullback, where he has made most of his senior rugby appearances, Mat qualifies for both England and Wales at schoolboy level and decided to play for the country of his residence and school, England U18 and followed this up with England U20 appearances in the U20 6 Nations. In July 2017 Matt joined Bristol Rugby and made an excellent start to his tenure at the club scoring a hat-trick of tries in pre-season and making several starts in the league. Photo credit JMPUK.
